Since 1992 IFCO/Pastors for Peace has organized Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba as a “People-to-People” challenge of the immoral blockade and travel ban. The proof that our efforts have worked lies in recent changes announced by the Obama Administration to move toward normalizing relations with Cuba.
Today’s announcement shows us that each Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan travel challenge to Cuba to resist the US travel ban, has finally compelled the US government to re-evaluate its enforcement. We welcome this first step toward the reversal of a travel ban that have stifled our freedom as US citizens to travel freely to visit and learn from our neighbors in Cuba.
To learn more, continue to follow our work.
Join the Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba this summer.
As Reverend Lucius Walker, the founder of IFCO/Pastors for Peace, said, “We act not just in defiance of our government, but in obedience to our conscience.”
